6:38 am
member. sean penn on the other side, i think he's more someone that i was focused on because you know, we've seen him stand for certain policies. whether we want to agree with him or not. if he feel's something, he's going to say it. what i had the chance to do was to get on the phone with sean to let him know we had a great conversation. when i'm in haiti i want to see what he's doing with the camp and we get a chance to sit down and talk so i can explain to him my entire policies. because my idea is not to push people out of haiti. it's to keep people like sean penn in heat. >> one of the ways you make money is through your music career. when i come back i want to ask you questions about the new album. we'll be right back. >> when it comes to the music, i'm not here to like trust anyone. i'm here to say let's take the

6:45 am
aam, the same will i am is to the black eyed peas. if i didn't do that, i wouldn't still be able to be around and do all these records the way i do. in the fujis, you know, lauren is like, you know, your modern day niknenina simone. aretha franklin. the voice of the soul. but almost like a female super hero because she rhymes as well as she sings and the talent is beyond the norm. there you have prize. all right? prize, though, to his credit -- no, no, no, no. >> i'm serious. there's always the narrative. >> there's always the narrative. i've heard it for a while. but you know. and i've even cracked jokes on it, too. right? you've seen it. but i think at the same time,
6:46 am
prize brings a certain ear into the studio. when he's in the context of the fujis. he can hear something, say yo, this is right, or try this sample, let's go left here, you know, it is the synergy of the three that made that happen. when we was in there, like it was no trust. like you fell me? like lauren had to basically -- >> create a trust. >> -- lauren has to put her trust in me. you know what i mean? when i say let's go like this, you know what i mean? because out of the three fujis, the pulse of this time in this generation they would have to say, okay, you know what? you know we really got to just listen to what 'clef is saying and fix it with what we're sigh saying. >> lauren didn't trust you creatively. >> no. and i didn't trust them creatively at all. because i'm not -- when it comes to the music, i'm not here to like trust anyone.
6:47 am
i'm here to say let's take the group from point a and skyrocket it. that's my job. >> so -- i don't mean to over simplify this -- >> you can. >> you were the leader and they wouldn't follow? >> well, i wouldn't say that i'm the leader of the fujis. what i would do is, i would put the three of us out there and you've seen careerwise what everyone has done and you can say, okay, well this one's the producer. i would say more when it comes to the fujis, i was t top producer of the fujis. >> right. >> yeah. >> right. is there any truth to the story that was circulating that part of why you don't work is lauryn hill became unmanageable, she was in the studio, she was demanding things, she was hard to work with, it was no longer a family environment? >> i don't see no difference with lauryn hill or 99% of the girls i work with. every woman is a diva within
6:48 am
their own light. now woman be more extreme than others. >> was she more extreme? >> if she say call me mrs. hill and another girl says when i come in the room i need it completely pink, you tell me what's more extreme. somebody who you've known pofor0 years -- >> yeah, but what i respect is the growth of an individual. there's something a person might go through. he be like, you know what? i want to be called miss hill. >> so what's next for you? >> what's next is the -- i want to thank black enterprise, of course, golf and tennis challenge, because when i was doing that event, a gentleman jumped on stage and he was jamaican and he brought this water for me to taste on stage. not only did he brought the water he started singing about the water. the whole night turned into a

jam. ♪ ♪ ♪ >> so we have a partnership now. through that event. so we'll be developing this water company. it's in school systems and we plan to take it around the world. and of course, the political party on the ground in haiti will continue fighting for people. human rights is important. education is important. job creation is important. and of course, tourism. i got to bring that back to the country. and then after that, just taking time with family. my daughter, my wife, just to reflect on what the future going to look like. >> i hope that future includes another run for the presidency. the people need you, man. >> ten years. >> all right. i'm going to hold you to that.
